Complaint - Equipment, Seats

I PURCHASED FOUR AFTER MARKET BUILT IN VIDEO/DVD MONITOR HEAD RESTS THAT BROKE APART UPON IMPACT WHEN THE MIDDLE ROW SEAT WAS FLIPPED FORWARD INTO THE FRONT SEAT OF MY 2008 HONDA ODYSSEY. THE METAL SUPPORT POLE WAS ONLY ATTACHED TO PLASTIC. THIS IS CLEARLY A DEFECT SUBSTANDARD DESIGN WHICH CAUSES CONCERN FOR ME OF WHAT WOULD OCCUR DURING AN ACCIDENT IF BY JUST THE SEAT FLIPPING FORWARD INTO THE OTHER COULD BREAK THE HOUSING . THE HEAD REST IS MADE BY TVIEW MOBILE ENTERTAINMENT SOLUTIONS (UNIVERSAL ELECTRONICS INC) 5721 SAVOY ST. HOUSTON TX 77036. 800.559.6580 OR 832.251.2000 EMAIL [email protected] THE MODEL IS T920PL-GR 9.2 TFT. I PURCHASED THE VIDEO HEAD RESTS FROM NATIONAL AUTO SOUND LOCATED AT 11001 E US HWY 40, INDEPENDENCE, MO 64055 PHONE 816.356.8700 WWW.NATIONALAUTOSOUND.COM I WAS TOLD WHEN I PURCHASED THE HEAD REST THAT THEY COMPLY TO SAFETY STANDARDS BUT AFTER THE ABOVE INCIDENT THEY CLEARLY DO NOT. SO MY QUESTION IS WHAT ARE THE STANDARDS FOR AFTER MARKET HEAD RESTS AND ARE THERE SAFETY STANDARDS COMPANIES NEED TO COMPLY TO?
